    ..Our findings suggest that TAF-5, TAF-9, and TAF-10 are part of a functional module of TFIID- and TFTC/SAGA-related complexes that can be bypassed in many metazoan-specific genes. ..

    ..Our findings imply that in metazoans TFIID may be of widespread importance for transcription and for expression of tissue-specific genes. ..
